The Child Development Profile

This service is available by telephone or in person with us or a G-Systems authorized interpreter.

Name the three most difficult jobs in life…If you did not include “parenting” in that list, you probably have never gone through the experience. What makes parenting so difficult is the fact that you are dealing with a totally different entity from yourself. Love and affection not withstanding, you probably don’t know this “being” any better than you know the traveler sitting next to you on the plane. And, unlike your fellow passenger, who will disembark at the end of the flight never to be seen again, this other little person(s) in your household is likely to be around some 18 years or so. Unfortunately, time is not your ally here because this person you’re dealing with keeps going through developmental and hormonal changes with about as much predictability as an earthquake. We’ve been dealing with these issues for a number of years and offer a complete service that will furnish parents with as much information as possible about their child, together with a methodology that would make both the parenting process more efficient and the development of the child more successful.

The Child Development Profile, whose whole foundation lies in the child’s Bicircadian Chart, will address itself to a complete range of personal and developmental issues to effect a more workable and harmonious parent-child relationship. The profile can be applied to children from ages 1 through 18 and can be analyzed according to the child’s current age and developmental experiences and needs. Thus the parent can take advantage of this information all throughout the age span.

Some of the areas that will be covered will be issues of personality needs; growth and developmental requirements and resistance’s or blocks to be considered; ego requirements; a full range of educational issues, to include learning qualities and impairments, study habits, intellectual interest, educational workloads, relationships with teachers and the educational system, peer pressures and social requirements and reaction to parental demands or expectations. We will take a look at general health indicators together with those sections that give us insight to energy levels and mental and physical stamina. Strong focus will be put on emotional needs and characteristics, including how praise might help or hinder, together with those emotional issues that the child might be trying to hide. In short, The Child Development Profile will address itself to the full range of issues confronting parent-child relationships. Single parent issues and sibling relationships will also be included where applicable.
